Lot Essay

This work represents an aesthetic and conceptual departure from the designer’s earlier production of works produced from clear glass, initiating the gradually shaded tones that were to define his oeuvre during the latter part of the 1950s.

This design was awarded the Grand Prix at the Milan Triennale of 1957.
